Jobs created, but unemployment increases in January

  • 157Kjobs created in January, thanks primarily to strong showings in the construction, retail, hotel and food industries. The gains in construction specifically seem hopeful, especially in relation to a strengthening home-buyers’ market, but one solid month does not a panacea make, sadly — the U.S. unemployment rate nonetheless ticked upwards last month, from 7.8 to 7.9. source

Paramount Pictures plans British theme park to challenge Disneyland France

  • £2B will be spent to create an 872-acre amusement park on the Swanscombe Peninsula in Kent, England. The first attraction to be announced was Titanic 4D, which will offer viewers a state-of-the-art look at the famous cruise ship.
  • 27,000 jobs would be created by the proposed development, which will reportedly include Europe’s largest indoor water park, live music venues, movie theaters, and more. The planned park would only be a 17-minute train ride from London, or two hours from tourists arriving from Paris. source

The Workers: an interactive look into the lives of those working on One World Trade Center, the largest construction project in the United States.

Certainly a must-look, all. In their words, in their voices.

If you build it, a carefully managed number of people will come

  • coming soon The World Trade Center memorial is on pace to be opened for public attendance by the ten-year anniversary of the attacks (which, as it always bears mentioning, betrays a shamefully slow process).
  • not so fast Due to the expected volume of visitors, size of the memorial, and transit/security concerns, it’s anticipated that visiting the memorial will be crowd-restricted at about 1,500 people. source
